  • The Domain Name Service (DNS) service converts human-readable domain names (for example: to computer-readable IP addresses (for example: DNS relies on the "DNS zones" that exist on the server, to convert the domain name to IP addresses.
    WHM offers the ability to add a DNS zone that will go into the administration of the DNS service installed on the server. This functionality is provided by
    DNS Functions, more precisely Add a DNS Zone. This DNS zone will be added after a template, which can also be edited from the WHM interface, specifically WHM >> Home >> DNS Functions >> Edit Zone Templates.
  • When adding new cPanel accounts or addon domains, dns zones are added automatically..


  • WHM credentials. This data can be found in the management email of the reseller account or VPS with cPanel/WHM.


  • After logging in to the WHM panel on the left side of the page we will go to the DNS Functions section and click on Add a DNS Zone. Alternatively, we can look for this menu using the search field in the upper left.
